The Minnesota Timberwolves advanced to the Western Conference Finals after defeating the Denver Nuggets in Game 7 Sunday night, which had Charles Barkley asking Anthony Edwards where he should eat in Minneapolis because he says he hasn't been to Minnesota in "probably 20 years."

Minnesotans were quick to chime in, offering up recommendations on spots for Barkley to visit. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey suggested Fhima's — he also shared a full list of restaurants from the city's website. Gov. Tim Walz threw out classic recommendations, including the Nook and Matt's Bar.

Meanwhile, FOX 9 Good Day foodie Stephanie March weighed in, saying Barkley should visit Maison Margaux, Porzana (because Barkley is known for his love of meats) and Billy Sushi for all the "baller glam."
